Organizational Behavior Management (OBM): Is the application of psychological principles of organizational behavior (OB) and the experimental analysis of behavior (EAB) to organizations to improve functional relations between employers and employees, modify the environment to facilitate optimum job performance, increase efficiency and fluency in individual and group performance as well as worker safety training.
What is OBM: Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) is a sub-discipline of ABA, which is the application of the science of behavior to work/organizational environments. ABA emphasizes the use of operant and respondent procedures to produce behavior change in the work place. Behavior Analysis as a science has very explicit goals. Prediction and control of behavior, with an emphasis on control, are the objectives of behavior analysis (Hayes & Brownstein, 1986). Here at IBHS, we will teach you the skills you need to have your company running smooth with regard to manager and employee relations to employee efficiency and mastery over operations given each employee role.
OBM has commonalities with the field of Industrial– Organizational Psychology, all relating to the behavior of people in the workplace. There are many differences between the two fields as well. Industrial– Organizational Psychology is based on theory and has a focus on topics such as personnel selection and placement. OBM is guided by a single theory of human behavior and has historically emphasized identification and modification of the environmental variables that affect directly observable or verifiable employee performance (Bucklin, Alvero, Dickinson, Austin, & Jackson, 2000).
